Paul (Pablo) Russell
Paul was born and raised in Michigan. Since he was able to walk he learned to appreciate the wonders of the great outdoors especially fishing. After a family vacation to colorado he realized the mountains would be his home. After graduating from the University of Denver with a degree in biology/biochemistry he decided a stuffy lab room was not for him and moved to Steamboat to "try" guiding for a year. That was 1995. In 2003 he started Yampa River Outfitters. Paul is still as passionate about fishing as the first time he caught a fish and the first guide trip he ever took. He lives and breathes fishing. He is an accomplished fly tyer, a patient teacher, and a joy to be with on the water. Paul is a SAGE elite member, a SIMMS ambassador, a Scientific Anglers pro staff member, and he teaches entomology at the local college. A day on the water with Paul is a day you won't soon forget!
